When I was younger, I decided to stop drinking soda. I was an athlete (sometimes I like to pretend I still am) and I didn’t like the idea of ingesting all those chemicals and sugar. So for a long time, I avoided any type of soda.
As I got older, I realized that not ALL soda was bad - it was just a matter of picking the right brands. These days, my favorite is Zevia. They have a ton of delicious flavors (think Cream Soda, Ginger Ale and Grapefruit Citrus) AND they are sugar free, GMO free, and made with no artificial sweeteners! How amazing is that?!
Basically, these mini pound cakes are the PERFECT guilt free snack! And because they are sugar free, you can probably get away with eating two...or three.

Mini Loaf Pans (like these)
